“Great hotel; Great Location; Friendly to English speaking guests”
Reviewed 23 October 2006

The Hotel Capitole was an excellent choice for my wife and me. We attended a conference in Quebec City and found this hotel to be very, very good.

Its location is excellent, just outside of the walls of the old city. And the old city is a wonderful place for tourists - it is like a small european town with beautiful stone buildings, shops and amny good resturants. As I remarked to one of the Quebecois city people, the old city has the best of North Ameica and Europe just a short walk from the hotel.

The hotel staff was very friendly, patient with us, they spoke English to us and made us feel very welcome. They answered all of our questions, even recomended resturants in the area that compete with their own fine resturant.

Our room was excellent, the whirlpool bath was large and the room was pleasant.

We both have a lot of experience traveling and this became a new favorite of ours.

There was only one sour note amongst many sweet ones. Don't ask for a glass of champagne sitting at the bar. They will pour you an excellent glass of champagne, but they will charge you $25 a glass.

  • Liked — Excellent Tourist Location, Friendlyness, Restuarants
  • Disliked — $25 glass of champagne
  • Tips/Secrets — Would be an excellent summer, fall, spring trip

Just stayed there over Oct. 13-15 2006. I travel almost every week so I have a pretty good feel for hotels. This was my first trip to the "mysterious" French Canada. After a single visit, I can tell you unequivocally that this is the place to stay in Quebec City. It is a modern and vibrant place that is walking distance (and a beautiful walk at that!) to all attractions. It is truly in the heart of the city. I enthusiastically recommend this to all-- business travelers and couples.

  • Liked — Location and Hotel Style
  • Disliked — They aren't much a full service hotel
  • Tips/Secrets — Just enjoy!

I had an excellent experience at the Hotel Capitole. I travel 6-8 months of the year for business, internationally and US domestic, and I crave good non-business hotels with a bit of character. This is definitely one of the nicer "non-business" hotels I've found. Very comfortable, spacious room, nice jacuzzi tub, funkily decorated. The staff were very helpful and forgiving of my awful French. Location is ideal, close to lots of good restaurants and entertainment and an easy walk to the Chateau and fort. The attached restaurant was also pretty good. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Liked — Room, ambiance
  • Disliked — Not ideal for business travelers, but still functional

Great location on Rue Saint-Jean near shopping and restaurants. Just a short walk to all attractions. Very nice and helpful staff. Comfortable beds and good breakfast at the restaurant. Valet parking is a little pricey at $17 plus taxes a day.

Hotel Capitole shares space with a theatre and jazz bar and is literally just steps away from Saint Jean in Vieux-Québec (Old Quebec).

High thread-count bed sheets, plush pillows, a nice bathroom with great complimentary products (Gilchrist & Soames of the UK) and a powerful showerhead made the stay comfortable, comfortable, comfortable.

One thing that might deter considering guests: smokey rooms...but hey, this again, is Quebec, n'est-ce pas?

If you like the little details that make a hotel stay special, you'll appreciate the "boutique-ness" of Le Capitole. On the upside, the location is great; 5 mins from Via Rail, a few steps from the St. Jean gate of the old city, across the street from a great steak house as well as the theatre on the premises.The staff were friendly, biligual and attentive. The room/hotel was spotless and decorated in a retro art deco style. We had one dinner at the inhouse restaurant - Il Teatro, food was good and service great. The rooms although small did have some nice decor and little details; well stocked honour bar, in room coffee with creamers stocked in fridge, CD player, tv with VCR (movies available for free at the front desk, however, english titles are limited) Down duvet and pillows, phone in bathroom, jacuzzi tub, terry robe, although only one, q-tips and toiletries supplied. As far as the downside...the bed was horrific! I woke up with a sore back every morning and ended up having to sleep sitting up against the head board. The bed has no box spring, just a mattress on a flat board and our mattress was in dire need of replacement. Seriously, if you want people to come back then you have to invest in a good pillow top mattress!The jacuzzi was nice, but the jets did little to massage, more noise than anything.
